The perfect venue for the perfect night
We had an amazing time renting the Carriage House for our recent wedding on August 3rd. Their staff was always willing to allow me to come and share the venue before hand with friends and family and let us into the gardens for free when we visited. The onsite bridal suite was perfect for my bridesmaids and I to get ready in and the grounds were the perfect backdrop for our big day! Everyone was in awe of our venue and how beautiful it all came together!Sent on 08/05/2019
